Muddy Creek Art Show at Greenstreet Gardens This Weekend
The Muddy Creek Artists Guild will be hosting one of its quarterly shows at Greenstreet Gardens in Lothian starting Friday. The “Harvest of Artists” show will run through Sunday with art from over 60 local artists. Art at the show will be available for purchase throughout the event.
The Muddy Creek artists all live south of the South River. All create original works of art in any form you could imagine: photography, paintings, pastels, oils, acrylic, watercolors, printmaking, batik, silkscreen, textiles, sculpture, collage, glass, beading, jewelry, metalwork and wood, among others.
The guild was started a few years ago when fouding president Bea Poulin asked a few artists she knew if they’d like to get together to host shows and promote art to the South County community. Those artists readily signed on.
Then, word about the guild spread like wildfire and soon they had to suspend signing new artists while they worked on getting organized.
Their first show, “Artists on the Half Shell” at Galesville Memorial Hall was a huge success, bringing art lovers from all over to Galesville and giving the artists cash in their pockets (something every starving artist loves).
They followed it up with a fall show and then Christmas show, utilizing vacant office space in various South County communities.
This weekend, their fall show is taking place at Greenstreet Gardens. Owners Ray and Stacy Greenstreet have opened their greenhouse as a backdrop. Outside, artists will be painting en Plein Air during the show. Visitors are invited to watch the painters—and even purchase the finished paintings.
Greenstreet Gardens is located at 391 West Bay Front Road in Lothian.
